Polymers for 3D Printing and Customized Additive Manufacturing

  title={Polymers for 3D Printing and Customized Additive Manufacturing},
  author={Samuel Clark Ligon and Robert Liska and Juergen Stampfl and Matthias Gurr and R Rolf M{\"u}lhaupt},
  booktitle={Chemical reviews},
Additive manufacturing (AM) alias 3D printing translates computer-aided design (CAD) virtual 3D models into physical objects. By digital slicing of CAD, 3D scan, or tomography data, AM builds objects layer by layer without the need for molds or machining. AM enables decentralized fabrication of customized objects on demand by exploiting digital information storage and retrieval via the Internet. The ongoing transition from rapid prototyping to rapid manufacturing prompts new challenges for… CONTINUE READING
